An amazing experience that i will probably repeat once again. This four weeks have been absolutely amazing and magical, I have met so many amazing people, the city is beautiful, it has amazing and many beaches as well as walking tracks. The team was also amazing. I had a really difficult time leaving Aracy as well as Paraty. The whole team was very welcoming, nice, loving and ready to help. One of my best experiences on my trip. Im gonna miss everyone and also the whole spirit that Paraty brings.

Paulo is a great host and have become a friend. He is flexible with time schedule, tasks etc.
The hostel felt like home to me. I hope I can come back soon.

Iniciar meu voluntariado como WP no Aracy Hostel, foi maravilhoso, uma experiência fantástica. É um lugar que você se sente em casa. O trabalho foi tranquilo, o horário também era ótimo e isso facilitava bastante para que eu pudesse conhecer pelos arredores e as praias maravilhosas que tem por Paraty. Paulo é um excelente anfitrião! Querido por todos, sempre, sempre disposto a ensinar. Paulo, sou muito grata por ter tido a oportunidade de voluntariar no Aracy. Agradeço também as voluntárias Letícia e Nastja que me receberam com bastante carinho. De vocês, levo um pedacinho de cada em meu ❤

Foi uma experiencia incrível Voluntariar no Aracy Hostel, a escala de trabalho é excelente justa para todos, a localização é muito boa, o Paulo uma pessoa fantástica, educado mas as vezes falta sensibilidade/tato nele. No mais ele é maravilhoso. No meio da semana deu folga geral onde fomos a outro Hostel ter uma experiencia bem legal, café delicioso da manhã. Uma parte mais delicada é outra voluntaria estar lá a mais de seis meses, um pouco mandona, me ajudou bastante mas no final usou o bullying, espero que o anfitrião melhore nessa parte. O lugar é um encanto! Recomendo

Verdade que às vezes me falta tato, principalmente quando tenho que repetir a mesma coisa muitas vezes acabo perdendo minha paciência e posso ser meio indelicado. Quanto às voluntárias, nenhuma delas está aqui há 6 meses mas quando são excepcionais e tenho confiança, gosto e até peço às vezes que fiquem mais tempo pois isso me dá oxigênio. Sinto muito que sua experiência não tenha sido das melhores, o que não é o caso da maioria dos quase 150 voluntários que já passaram por aqui. De qualquer forma agradeço que nos tenha escolhido e feito tua avaliação. Vida que segue...

Foi melhor do que eu esperava. Me senti em casa, adorei conhecer o Paulo, foi um anfitrião impecável, cultivei um afeto por ele, é uma ótima pessoa! As tarefas são muito tranquilas, é um ambiente acolhedor e arrumar o local é como se estivessemos arrumando nossa casa. Eu indico muito o Aracy hostel, conheci pessoas maravilhosas, aprendi coisas, foi uma experiência que levarei pra vida. Sou grata por ter tido a oportunidade de ser voluntária neste lugar maravilhoso e volto em breve pra matar a saudade que já sinto.
